Capo 2nd fret

D                    A                  Bm
 Like the pine trees lining the winding road
Bm7         G    A            D
 I've got a name; I've got a name
D                 A                     Bm
 Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
           E7               A
I've got a name; I've got a name
F#m              G              D
 And I carry it with me like my daddy did
F#                  Bm   E7            A
 but I'm living the dream that he kept hid
F#m                 G
Moving me down the highway
F#m                   B7
rolling me down the highway
G                 A                C
moving ahead so life won't pass me by

D                    A                  Bm
 Like the north wind whistling down the sky
Bm7         G    A           D
 I've got a song; I've got a song
D                 A                   Bm
 Like the whippoorwill and the baby's cry
           E7               A
I've got a song; I've got a song
F#m             G             D
 And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
F#             Bm      E7             A
 if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud
F#m                 G
Moving me down the highway
F#m                   B7
rolling me down the highway
G                 A                C
moving ahead so life won't pass me by

D
 And I'm gonna go there free

D                A                  Bm
 Like the fool I am and I'll always be
Bm7         G    A            D
 I've got a dream; I've got a dream
D                      A                           Bm
 They can change their minds but they can't change me
           E7                A
I've got a dream; I've got a dream
F#m                 G                 D
 Oh, I know I could share it if you'd want me to
F#               Bm     E7            A
 if you're going my way, I'll go with you
F#m                 G
Moving me down the highway
F#m                   B7
rolling me down the highway
G                 A                C
moving ahead so life won't pass me by
F#m                 G
Moving me down the highway
F#m                   B7
rolling me down the highway
G                 A                C     D
moving ahead so life won't pass me by
